Originally from Madagascar, Euphorbia neobosseri is a small branched shrublet up to 25 cm high, with waxy slender stems heavily armed with waxy bone-colored thorns. In the upper regions of the stem, it produces grass-like leaves, up to 5 cm long and about 4 mm in width, giving the plant a most unusual appearance. It is similar in appearance to an Alluaudia or Didierea. The inflorescence is fairly short, usually bearing two to four flowers (cyathia) with five glossy yellow-orange nectar glands round which are two green cyathophylls tapering away to a curly tip, adding to the weirdness of the plant's appearance.
